Let it collapse... See who they blame.
...The high Democratic turnout...”
Successful Progressive efforts to turn out 120% of the Democrat vote in right-leaning districts may result in a Democrat super-majority. /s/
If they could just get enough money from us, they could solve all our problems.
Now they can.
Sometimes I think Republicans in the California legislature should abstain from every vote - no matter what it is. Let the whole thing go down in Liberal flames.
What happen when you run out of rich people?
They bought it, they own it.
the sooner California and hopefully Illinois collapse, the better. I hope they collapse HARD!!!!!!!
we’re not gonna bail ‘em out?
Dear California Conservatives,
Like East Germany of the past, please get out of California before they put up a fence to confine you and more importantly, your wealth, as property of the State. Texas will be glad to accept our liberty adhering brothers and sisters emigrating from a dictatorship.
Yours in Liberty,
Obama will bail them out and Ben will print more money. Same with New York.
Cut off the state and let it float out to sea
It is truely amazing to witness the morons of California. Rich poor and even bums all chant the same mantra of the brain washed left. The Mexicans just giggle at the stupidity of gringos. These idiots just passed a retroactive sales tax. Twenty five cents on the dollar is owed by any business that sold goods. So pretty soon the goods will be drying up.
DumBO’s reelection will pave the way, that, any tax hikes in California will be paid by the rest of the country, in particular, those without a state income tax.
I tell my students that I can run any business in America as long as I can borrow money. I’m going to tell them that I can also run any level of government as long as I can borrow money. California got a reprieve by having Obama be re-elected. Obama’s not going to let California go down the tubes. They vote Democrat. Obama will find a way to use federal money to bail California out. Jerry Brown is one happy man.
When California becomes a complete hellhole Mexico can have it back
I have previously commented on Calif Prop 13 and the attack beginning on commercial property. For those who don’t know, property tax in CA is set at the time of purchase at 1% plus local taxes that make it about 1.2-1.3% of purchase price. That is locked in and can only increase 2% of the total per year. A $300,000 purchase will have first year tax of about $3750. It can go up $75 the next year.
I knew that when they had a super majority, the RATS would attack Prop 13, which they have despised and targeted since its passage in 1978. The first area, as the article indicates is commercial property. The RATS think they can go after commercial property owners first because they will pose less opposition at this time than homeowners. But that will be coming.
In college I taught real estate law and economics. You do not have to have such background, however, to know what is going to happen when a commercial property owner gets a tax increase. Of course, that increase is passed onto the tenant. And, of course, that increased business cost is passed onto consumers. We pay more for goods. Well, poor people, get ready for that.
The California/Michigan experiment.
Two states starting in the same place and going in opposite directions. It should be very interesting to see which does better.
Prepare to keep bailing them out over and over. Do you think Obama is going to let the poster child of Progressivism fail ? We will all fail at once. The demise will be blamed on Capitalism, like it was in 2008. The media will go right along and, well, at least we get to see the looks on the welfare crowd when they realize they’re not going to get as much stuff and they’re going to have to work for it for the good of the collective.
